    That was the intention. But it's easy to lose track of how many actually went in each egg. Probably that 9th item was meant to go in the adjacent egg and got dropped by accident. If you'd like, you can pick 3 missing orange items to fill out your egg. They were picked by clicking on each room filter and selecting from the options for those rooms.

    Sounds good, I'll do that! I think I'll try using a random number generator for picking items within each remaining room filter just to keep things interesting.

    Oh good idea! Have fun, and can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Question, you say build a small house, Does that mean the game definition of a small home of 100 tiles?
    Jo2WEwv.jpg

    It’s time for another Spring Designer Showdown! Once again, we’ll be getting creative with colors! Not just bright spring colors, but they should definitely be featured. This time, you’ll download the lot below, which contains 12 “Easter Eggs”. Each egg contains eight objects all of which have a color in common. You must pick one of the eggs, then build a small house using all of the items inside it. You cannot change the color. No peeking inside before choosing your egg. The exterior colors do not necessarily reflect the colors o f the objects inside. Yes, the flooring should be featured in at least one of your rooms. You don’t have to use your egg or the exterior color unless you want to.
    8h4SvYg.png
    The lot with eggs can be found on the gallery under Spring23 Designer Showdown, #bns172, #spring23, and #spirngdesignershowdown23

    The brief:
    Budget: None
    Lot size: 30x20 (Avarice Acres was only used because it was big enough for all the eggs)
    The house must have a minimum of two bedrooms, one of which should be a nursery, as well as a living room, dining room, kitchen, and bathroom.
    Landscaping should include pastel flowers.

    The Sim Challenge; None this time.
    The Room Challenge: None this time.


    Remember to include the #hashtag #bsn172 or your entry will not be judged. Due: Sunday, April 30th, Midnighit Eastern Time.

    This home is a lovely farmhouse craftsman. With a large first floor primary, plenty of yard space, and coordinated interior, it is a lovely space to raise the family. Upstairs there is another primary bedroom, and 3 smaller rooms, perfect for a growing family. In my Slideshow I do have the family that I have moved in here.

    Description:
    A cozy family home owned by Skylar and Naomi Spring, passed down from Naomi’s late mother. They recently adopted a beautiful baby named Logan. Skylar and Naomi both love gardening, so obviously they love the spring season and all the spring holidays. On the first floor, this house has a kitchen and dining room, half bath, and living room. On the second floor, you’ll find a comfy reading nook, Logan’s nursery, a full bath, and the Master Bedroom.

    *note*- I chose the middle pink egg, and this is my first time actually working with brown colors, it was a really fun challenge :)

    Constructive criticism: yes, please

    Description: Upon opening my egg and finding lovely green items including the lime green Ambassador toilet I knew I had to do a period style house. The floor plan and decorations are based on my Great Aunt Florence's house - exterior and gardens are my own design. It was amazing how any details came flooding back including sounds and smells as I built. She and her husband bought their ultramodern home after world war 2 - the main pieces of furniture they saved for and bought as a set from an upmarket department store and it lasted their entire lifetime. The house was full of personality and knickknacks. It is late 50s/ early 60s inside. The bathroom was fun to build.

    I received: The Discretion Double Bed (master), The Yum Cooker (kitchen), Mesa de Familia - Dining Table (sunroom), Moisturisation Station by Wicker Work (master), The Ambassador toilet (bathroom), On the Spot green rug (nursery), Green garden pot (sunroom/ garden) and the first colour swatch of the Limber Lumber Fashion Hardwood floor (master/ nursery/kitchen, laundry).

    Description Earlier this month I picked an egg ( I left a comment on the Gallery as to which egg I chose at that time ) and finished a Home, only to have my 5 or so Year old laptop die on me. In creating another home (on my new laptop) I chose a different egg. ( I commented again which one I took-deleting the first comment ) I chose to build in San Sequoia. I wanted the home to blend in with the neighborhood ( Hence the modern style )- I also wanted to use the items from the 2 new kits.( Attributing to the Green house ensuite Master bath). So here we have Manzanita Terrace. It kind of built itself.. This was a Fun Challenge.

    Hi @BuildnShare --- My game won't load, and it says it failed to launch and is a problem on their end.

    I can't get my build in by April 30 if that isn't fixed today. I've tried to get it to start, but I keep getting that message. :(

    Thanks,

    Coolsim
